SSL Server Test - Supported Protocol

  I'm a bit new to this SSL lark, so apologies if my question (and understanding) are a bit basic.


  I've recently stumbled across the SSL Server Test tool on the SSLLabs site and a great tool it is too. However, looking in the report under "Protocols" it shows a line "SSL 2.0+ Upgrade Support". Now I've looked in the SSL Server rating Guide and generally around the internet using my favourite search engine, but I cannot find any reference to "SSL 2.0+ Upgrade Support". What does this mean? I've read about SSL 2.0 and it's replacement SSL 3.0, but can find no mention of "upgrade support". Any clarification of the meaning of this line would be much appreciated.


Thanks in advance
